Job Description for Child, Family, or School Social Worker

Child, family, or school social workers help support children who may be at risk due to circumstances at home, school, or other environments. As advocates for the children, the social worker acts as a liaison between various institutions, families, and the child. Typically, the social worker either identifies an at-risk child or is called in by some authority that has made this determination. The social worker works with the family to help create the best environment for the child, while assessing all health and psychological risks. Social workers in a school environment are typically charged with determining which students may be at risk and work with other teachers and counselors to aid the student and administer testing to help fully diagnose the extent of the student's needs.
